A FEW BULLET POINTS ON THE SUMMER TO COME...
*I'm honored to participate in BMI's Acoustic Lounge Showcase this evening, July 13, 2009 - 7PM @ Genghis Cohen in LA. Joining me for a songwriter's round will be fellow artists Sebastian Lords, Rolando and Josh Garza, and Elizabeth Elkins. Hope you can make it;
*I know it's been some time since I've checked in with you all as we've been busy preparing my third record "DANDELION" for release into this world. I'm pleased to report that the album is completely mixed and mastered, and now has a tentative release date of September 22, 2009 - full release information and details are coming by the end of this month - including a track by track commentary. In the mean time, starting the morning of Thursday July 16 (also known as my birthday) you can hear the new song FIRE SEASON on my Myspace media player;
* The International Pop Festival Los Angeles will host my first full band show of 2009 at the Knitting Factory on July 30, 2009. I've got some grand plans (and a killer band, featuring Steve Barton on guitar, Jesse Stern on bass, Sarah Scarlata on drums and Steven Wilson on Tabla) for the evening, including the debut of a song never before performed live from the new record "DANDELION". As an added incentive, there will be an extra special freebie for those in attendance - hope you can join us;
*Cruise on over to Too Poppy now for a brand new installment of my Homegrown Recordings series. This month's FREE mp3 download is a brand new acoustic mix of "SIMPLE LIFE", along with a sneak peek into the recording sessions for "DANDELION". Check it out now:
* Many more big dreams and schemes in store for the fall as "DANDELION" is rolled out - stay tuned...
